In case you missed the flurry of fantastic Business Class fares to multiple European destinations that showed up several weeks ago, you're in luck!
KLM just announced a winter holiday sale with fares to Barcelona as low as $1,803, and $2,175 to Copenhagen from New York. This is a great deal from the East Coast, but unfortunately fares from the West Cost jump up above $3,000.
The time period for travel coincides with both the Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year's holidays:
- Thanksgiving: travel between November 22, 2014 through November 28, 2014 (28 day advance purchase, 3-10 day stay permitted)

Interestingly enough when I tried to find availability for the fares above, I noticed even lower fares to Barcelona during the Thanksgiving time period as low as $1,620 New York on American Airlines:
And $2,390 from Los Angeles on a mix of Air France and Delta:
These fares aren't quite as low as the ones available in late-August, but if you don't have holiday plans and are looking for a quick mileage or vacation run, here's your chance!
